IT'S PERSONAL: SI.com's Peter King reported Las Vegas Locomotives President & head coach Jim Fassel "paid $30,000 out of his pocket to place ads for the current season." Fassel said, "It's really disappointing. I've poured so much of myself into this league. I put four years of my life into it. It's not about the quality of play on the field. ... It's the business model. It's the funding. If they weren't sure we had the funding, why'd we start the season?'' (SI.com, 10/21). Fassel said, "We have no marketing money. You can have the best hamburger stand in the state but if you don’t have money to advertise that fact, it’s hard to get people to take notice of you” (OMAHA WORLD-HERALD, 10/21).
